Web Tool Wednesday - Embed HTML or JavaScript in Google Sites

Some people just like vanilla ice cream.  In fact it's the number one flavor of ice cream in the United States.  But there are times when you want something more, something exciting, something that is different. 
So what does ice cream have to do with a technology blog , other than the fact we live in Brenham, TX home of the best tasting ice cream in the country? (*Disclaimer this blog is NOT sponsored by Blue Bell Ice Cream - but we wouldn't mind if it was.)

Well there has been a G Suite update that now allows you to embed webpages as iframes in the new Google Sites.   
What does this mean?  Up until now Google Sites has been the vanilla ice cream of web design.  It's nice, it's clean, it serves its purpose, and it's easy to use. But now you can add those extra flavors to it if you want.  Now your site can go from Vanilla to Sea Salt Caramel or just Cookies and Cream if you just want to dab with it a little.  For more 

Here's how:
  1. On a computer, open a site in Google Sites.
  2. At the right, click Insert and then  Embed.
  3. Click Embed code.
  4. Add your code, then click Next.
    • JavaScript code must be within <script> tags.
    • CSS code must be within <style> tags.
  5. Click Insert.
This will be gradually released to users with a full roll out on January 2, 2018. For more information, visit the G Suite Help Center
